Happiness...in a Cup


 This is my last card of the night (I swear!)  This is one of my favorite coffee cup images from Stamplorations.  I've been holding on to this piece of background paper I made using the ink and alcohol technique (very cool...and very messy...which is why I don't do it often and save every piece that I make:)  

Thanks to these challenges for helping me put this card together:
